As a charity, we rely on contributions of all sizes from individuals, trusts, foundations and organisations. Your support helps us deliver educational projects, develop our collections and exhibitions, and shape a world class venue, accessible to the widest range of visitors.

We gratefully accept donations of any size, however big or small. Every contribution we receive helps support our future development.

You can currently donate to the museum:

  • During Your Visit – Our current ‘donation package’ of £6 helps give you the best possible museum experience, and helps provide vital funding for our projects. Or you can donate whatever you like, at a till or in one of our collection boxes. And of course by visiting our Shop you’re helping to support the museum!
  • After Your Visit – you can still support us in a number of ways. Shopping at is one way, or you could sign up before, during or after your visit to become a Season Ticket Member of the museum (membership could also be a great gift to give).
  • All Year Round – we’re working with Give As You Live to support the museum. Head to to either make a one-off donation, or you can sign up to raise money for the museum as you shop online, at zero cost to yourself!
  • By Supporting ‘For Club And Country’ – For Club And Country is a fantastic project we’re running with The Woodland Trust. Contribute to a living legacy for the football fans and players who served in World War One. Your donation will help create an acre of memorial woodland in honour of each football club which whose players served in the war, as well as a digital legacy at Visit the website to find out more about the project and the role football clubs and players had in The First World War. 10% of donations come directly to the museum.

Please contact us if you would like to discuss your donation. Thank you for your support!
